ULTRAMAN GEED, the hugely popular show which concluded last December, has returned as a movie!
This time, we will see Riku Asakura, AKA Ultraman Geed, and his cohorts in Okinawa, Japan — the Paradise in the South Seas, fighting to defend Earth against the Gigantic Mechanical Brain Gillvalis and the Galactron Army, intent on eliminating all intelligent lifeforms throughout the universe.
Riku’s strong conviction awakens Geed to his final form: Ultimate Final, and his most powerful weapon, the Giga Finalizer, begins to roar!
ULTRAMAN GEED THE MOVIE: CONNECT THE WISHES! is now in theaters nationwide! Catch it at movie theaters across Japan!
The Gigantic Mechanical Brain Gillvalis and the Galactron Army, intent on wiping out all intelligent lifeforms in the universe, close in on Earth. Riku Asakura heads for Okinawa, where there are said to be clues to the “Red Steel” sought by Gillvalis. There, Riku encounters Ail (Yuika Motokariya), who realizes that he is Ultraman and assigns him an important mission.
Meanwhile, the Galactron Army begins attacking Okinawa in search of the “Red Steel”. Ultraman Geed, Orb, and Zero rush to Earth, but Geed’s hasty actions in sticking to his mission put the Ultraman team in even more danger!
Will Ultraman Geed and his cohorts be able to stop the mighty power of Gillvalis..?
With Earth about to be swallowed up in the cyber subdimension and annihilated, the power of “wishes” will cause Geed to undergo a further transformation!
